Athens law director says no blasting without permit
(2008-05-09)
(WOUB) - Athens City Law Director Pat Lang is promising "swift legal action" if a developer does any blasting without a city permit.

The company doing the Summit at Coates Run project has said it does not need local approval but Lang Thursday issued an opinion saying that's wrong.

Lang contends the language of the Athens City Code is clear on that point.

The Summit at Coates Run is a large apartment complex proposed for a hillside above Richland Avenue.

The developer has indicated quite of bit of earth-moving will be necessary before work is started on the buildings.
